Dick Clark Sued for Age Discrimination
A 76-year-old game show producer sued Ã¢€œAmerican BandstandÃ¢€ icon Dick ClarkÃ¢€™s production company for age discrimination Monday, saying he was “embarrassed, humiliated and aggravatedÃ¢€ when he was passed up for a job by his fellow septuagenarian.
Ralph Andrews, producer of such game shows as Ã¢€œLiarÃ¢€™s ClubÃ¢€ and Ã¢€œCelebrity Sweepstakes,Ã¢€ claims in his Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit that Clark, 74, sent him a letter in May of 2003 saying he was too old for a job with his production company.
In Clark’s defense, he looks much younger than 74.
